Ticket comes with a free copy of August Premier's new EP!
So Mark and Chris came to Mickey and Danny looking to start a new band. August Premier is born. All four of them started writing songs and rehearsing as much as possible. As soon as they had a set of song's they were happy with the started playing shows. Played everywhere they could college parties...battle of the bands..local shows..leading up to opening for bands like Alkaline Trio, ShowOff, Sig Transit Gloria, Allister and Lucky Boy's Confusion. This helped them get a large following in the Chicagoland area. August Premier is comprised of four dedicated musicians. On rhythm guitar and most vocals is Chris Rogner. Danny Halminiak picks up the rest of the vocals, as well as back-ups, and jams out on lead guitar. Mark Halminiak holds the bass guitar while rocking in his own special way. Last ,but not least, Mickey Molinari plays drums with a vengeance, with crazy fills and unbelievable beats. Individually they are four talented musicians. Together, they work to bring thier music to a new level.
"Representing Chicago's DIY music scene, She's Alive give a powerpop punch to the windy city" says Neck Deep Media's Andrew Wynykoski of the band's debut EP, 'Left To Live For'. All veterans of the midwest scene, the five-piece assembled in 2012 and have wasted no time, quickly hammering out a tight collection of songs and securing studio time at Rob Freeman's renowned Pilot Studio in New Jersey. Since the release of the EP in the summer of 2012 She's Alive have supported touring artists including Paradise Fears, Forever the Sickest Kids, Rocky Loves Emily and more followed by a string of solo tour-dates in the midwest and east coast.
Hard Kiss lives in Chicago, IL and loves it, loves Jawbreaker, Elastica, and The Clash, will take the last beer without asking, recorded their debut album 100% DIY, will step outside with you for a cigarette, will play pretty much anywhere with a PA, loves INXS, Prince, and T. Rex, thinks making music should involve sweat, blood and saliva, will come hang out at your barbecue, loves The Replacements, Billy Idol, and Tom Petty, and thinks that sleeves are always optional!
From former members of Chicago bands The Smoking Popes, Alkaline Trio and Showoff. White City ( which derives its name from the city that was built for the Worlds Fair in 1893 in Chicago, that ultimately crumbled and burned, was also the stalking ground for Americas first serial killer, HH Holmes.) is a new Pop-Punk band.
